Why You Might Need a Refund

There are three main reasons for getting a refund on your 2290. The first is if you simply made a mistake when you originally filed. If you reported too much tax liability, then you’ll want to get a refund from the IRS.

Another potential reason to get a refund is if your vehicle is sold, destroyed, or stolen. If this happens before June 1st of any period that you file your 2290 for and you don’t use it during the period, you’re eligible for a refund! For this kind of refund, you’ll need to provide your former vehicle’s information, including its VIN, and the date it left your life via sale or theft.

The last reason to get a refund is if you drive your vehicle for fewer than 5,000 miles during the tax period. For farm vehicles, the limit is 7,500 miles. The IRS doesn’t mind you using your heavy vehicles if they drive less than this, so they’ll issue you a refund.
